Hi, I'm the uploader of the St. Louis Argus newspaper collection. I did these uploads several years ago as an undergrad with a local archive. I recently went to look in said archive and noticed that nearly 3/4s of the newspapers were removed from my collection and put under the ownership of "ArchiveUser14761." When I click on said user it's just basically the missing newspaper files and nothing more.

I now work for a different institution and was looking forward to revisiting these files and reindexing them, since they get a fair amount of use due to their important relation to the study of early 20th century African American commerce in the midwest....and now I can't!

Only a few months ago it would say I was the uploader and the archivist was Jeff Kaplan, who was the fellow I often interfaced with when I was uploading these years ago...what changed?

those items were upload by an account with a different email address than yours.

I'm confused. I just did a google search for my name + the argus and got the collection:
https://archive.org/details/stlouisargus?tab=collection

But when I look at my uploads page, it only shows something like 350 uploads in all. And under collections there's only about 210 across three.

The only other email that I've used is impeach.bush92@xxxxxxx, I changed that and that's reflected in the history files from the Argus collection page (the new email my current login).

So where did those new argus files come from? Did someone copy my files? Seems like a lot of work.
